不能嚼口香糖其实只是个谣言,可是深夜在外喝酒却是违法的行为?! 你还想去新加坡吗? 对许多外国人来说,新加坡是个世外桃源,可是真正的新加坡你又知道多少?走过一圈狮城后你是否跟我一样觉得原来新加坡也不过如此? 1) 当地食物没特色,太多样化! 泰国有东炎汤(酸辣虾汤),日本有刺身寿司,韩国有泡菜,台湾有卤肉饭、珍珠奶茶,香港有点心、冻奶茶…… 新加坡?我说不出一个特色必吃。可是在这多元种族的城市里找得到的是各式各样可口美味的美食。海南鸡饭、肉骨茶、沙爹、喇沙 (laksa)、 福建炒虾面、炒菜头糕、面薄 (meepok)、辣椒螃蟹、咖喱鱼头、罗惹 (rojak) 等等。没有一个特色食品是因为各个食品都美味可口。 2) 语言原来很不通! 因双语教育政策,大多数新加坡人都会两种语言 — 英语和自己的母语:中文、马来文或淡米尔文。有些人因家里保留着籍贯语言而还会第三、第四语言。既然精通双/多语,怎么还是有外国旅客说听不懂新加坡人讲的话?新加坡人之间是否有着个只有他们自己听得懂的秘密语言?原来,外国人听不懂的是新加坡人习惯性用的 ‘新加坡式英文 (Singlish)’。听起来音调怪怪地又掺杂着其他语言词汇的 Singlish 是当地新加坡人都又爱又恨的「洋泾浜英语 (creole)」。 一句典型的新加坡式英文:“Eat already?” ,意思是 “吃饱了吗?”,可是正确的英文句子应该是:“Have you eaten?”  还有,新加坡式英文到底有多怪?注意任何一个新加坡人讲话时说 “Today” 和 “Do they”… 一模一样,不是吗? 3) 意想不到的温度差异 新加坡真正的自然温度差役是世界上最小之一,全年平均最高的温度和最低分别是31.5°C与24.7°C。可是因为全年夏天,新加坡的室内温度都会调得偏低,平均室内冷气温度调在23°C。今年三月份狮城热流,温度一度升到35°C,室内与室外的温度差异有足足12度!在全年热乎乎的新加坡,新加坡人最开心的时候就是钻进商场内享受凉凉的冷气,但室外与室内的温度差异可真是令很多旅客懊恼。所以如果你有要来新加坡旅行,记得带件外套! 4) 怎么那么小  新加坡是个小岛国。那么小的地方有什么值得看的?不是高楼就是大厦的新加坡又何必要观光?新加坡本岛的面积大约720平方公里,东西长度大概42公里、南北宽度22.5公里。相对的,台湾的太鲁阁国家公园总面积有920平方公里。一个国家的国家公园都比另一个国家还大! 新加坡人热爱旅游不是没原因的,就因为自己的国家小,真是没什么好看好玩的。可是国家小小的却有着大大的好处。新加坡拥有完善的交通设施,公共交通系统不只洁净还又安全又方便又廉价。不只本岛,新加坡也有几个开发了的岛屿列如圣淘沙、乌敏岛、科尼岛等让人观光及探索。不说你不知,新加坡除了本岛其实还有六十二个小岛屿! 5) 好造假!(根本就是个人造瀑布之城) 如果你喜爱大自然,那么新加坡没什么好看的。虽然被称为 “花园都市”,新加坡最大的花园之一却是个人造花园 — 滨海湾花园。不只,在新加坡值得看的瀑布也都是人造瀑布,如:裕廊飞禽公园 Jurong Bird Park (30米高),滨海湾花园 Gardens by the...
